Jesuit Volunteer Corps Service Scholarship

Biomedical Graduate Education (BGE) fosters a culture in challenging our students to engage in the world and become men and women in the service of others, especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the community. These values constitute the core of Georgetown’s identity, binding members of the community across diverse backgrounds.

BGE is pleased to announce that we are an education partner with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, which “engages passionate young people in vita service within poor communities, fostering the growth of leaders committed to faith in action”.

Starting Fall 2020, individuals who have served for at least one (1) year with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps receive a 20% tuition scholarship during each semester in which they are enrolled. Students must be registered full-time in an eligible BGE master’s program in order to receive the scholarship.
